  • Someone once asked me why didn't I teach - pass on my experience to somebody else? In reply, I said I would have to start by saying, I can teach you nothing because I know nothing and that's after a lifetime of working for artistic completion, reading, writing, researching, discussing and observing. I broke all the rules in an effort to get at the truth of something and landed back on my own two feet with the conclusion that nobody else knows anything either. So there are no teachers, no pundits, only yourself. I started by trying to wed the thing and some hidden meaning of it and instinctively demanding a shape that overall accommodated both. Now I've arrived at a logical development of this idea with the blanks substituting or suggesting what I didn't know." Patrick Collins, from the exhibition catalogue to his solo show at the Caldwell Galleries, Dublin, November, 1989The recent RHA exhibition of Collins' 'cut outs' in 2011 brought into focus this controversial series from the mid-eighties. While these works show the artist employing a new technique, the brutal cutting of canvas with a scissors, they tie in with his earlier preoccupation of relating the painted image to the edge of the picture plane."

Price Realised: €2600

  • Signature: signed lower right
  • Medium: lithograph in colours; (no. 14 from an edition of 35)
  • Dimensions: 39 by 26.5in., 97.5 by 66.25cm.
  • This image by Paula Rego of Jane Eyre, was reproduced as a postage stamp by Royal Mail in 2005 as part of a series of stamps using Rego's lithographs based on the Brontë Sisters.In 2001 Paula Rego began work on a substantial series of pastels and lithographs inspired by Charlotte Brontë's Jane Eyre, the culmination of which was shown in the exhibition 'Jane Eyre and Other Stories' at the Marlborough Gallery, London in 2003. Rego was born in Lisbon in 1935. She studied at the Slade School of Art in London between 1952 and 1956. It was at the Slade that Rego met her future husband, the English painter Victor Willing. Following a number of years spent between England and Portugal they permanently settled in London in 1976. Rego enjoyed initial success in Portugal with her semi-abstract, Surrealist style paintings that often incorporated elements of collage. However, it was during the late 1970s that her reputation as a prolific painter and printmaker began to accelerate. Rego shifted from loose semi-abstraction to a more figurative and graphic style of representation, typically displaying the strong lines and clear forms that have become synonymous with her oeuvre. A strong sense of narrative or storytelling is also a quintessential characteristic of a work by Rego who has often found inspiration from the literary works of writers such as Charlotte Brontë, Frans Kafka and J.M. Barrie. Rego has been the subject of a number of career retrospective exhibitions including shows at the Serpentine Gallery in London (1988), the Calouste Gulbenkian Foundation in Lisbon (1988), Tate Liverpool (1997), Tate Britain (2005) and the Museo Nacional Centro de Arte Reina Sofia in Madrid (2007). Numerous examples of her work can be found in public collections such as the Tate Gallery in London, the British Museum in London and the Yale Center for British Art in Yale USA.Rego is represented by the Marlborough Fine Art Gallery, London and continues to work and live in London. In 2010, Rego was made Dame of the British Empire in the Queen's Birthday Honours list.

  • Medium: oil and gampi tissue on panel with photographic component
  • Dimensions: 29 by 25in., 72.5 by 62.5cm.
  • In spring of 2005 the Fenton Gallery, Cork hosted Hughie O’Donoghue’s solo show, ‘Parable of The Prodigal Son’. The exhibition traced the fable through a series of narrative panels of which this is one. The story told by the artist was inspired by a set of plate negatives bought at a car-boot sale. These photographs of unknown people fused with the artist’s own imagined ideas of their lives, memories of his father and grandfather and ‘the muddy wastes of the Western Front’ fuse to form a collection of contemplative multifaceted visual meditations. The artist describes his creative processes for these panels as, “…a balance between action and contemplation, the old alchemical division between laboratory and library, only in my case the laboratory is a painting studio.”

  • Liam O'Keeffe-Ayudhkij, who was born in Dublin in 1945, relocated to Thailand at the age of eighteen and is renowned in both the country of his birth and in South East Asia for his contribution to business, arts and charitable organisations in Thailand. O'Keeffe-Ayudhkij was a keen art collector and built up lasting friendships with Irish artists such as Patrick Scott. The meditative quality of Scott's oeuvre appears to have connected with him and his collection of early Scott canvases offered in this sale is testament to this. In Thailand O'Keeffe-Ayudhkij's love of art manifested itself in his support of Asian artists, the setting up of 'Liam's Gallery' in Pattaya and a book written by him on Thai art. He was also director of the Phya Thai Palace Restoration Committee. After traveling Thailand from 1963 he settled in Bangkok where a surge in the local property market in the 1970s opened up employment opportunities particularly in the property care services industry. In 1989 he led the management buyout of the company he worked for and formed his own business, which he grew from the mid 1990s. By 2007 the company was employing 23,000 people. As an Irish expatriate O'Keeffe-Ayudhkij was invited in 2009 to the Global Irish Economic Forum in Farmleigh. He was also a founder and director of the Irish Thai Chamber of Commerce and a past president of the Bangkok St. Patrick's Society among other accolades. Outside of the business arena O'Keeffe was a true philanthropist and committed to many charitable organisations including Support the Children Foundation and the Bangkok Nursing Home Hospital. His obituary in the Irish Times this year noted, He will be remembered for his business acumen, charity work, love of art and boundless enthusiasm.""

  • Provenance: Taylor Galleries, Dublin;Where purchased by Liam O'Keeffe-Ayudhkij
  • Sheet size: 45.5 by 25.5in.Liam O'Keeffe-Ayudhkij, who was born in Dublin in 1945, relocated to Thailand at the age of eighteen and is renowned in both the country of his birth and in South East Asia for his contribution to business, arts and charitable organisations in Thailand. O'Keeffe-Ayudhkij was a keen art collector and built up lasting friendships with Irish artists such as Patrick Scott. The meditative quality of Scott's oeuvre appears to have connected with him and his collection of early Scott canvases offered in this sale is testament to this. In Thailand O'Keeffe-Ayudhkij's love of art manifested itself in his support of Asian artists, the setting up of 'Liam's Gallery' in Pattaya and a book written by him on Thai art. He was also director of the Phya Thai Palace Restoration Committee. After traveling Thailand from 1963 he settled in Bangkok where a surge in the local property market in the 1970s opened up employment opportunities particularly in the property care services industry. In 1989 he led the management buyout of the company he worked for and formed his own business, which he grew from the mid 1990s. By 2007 the company was employing 23,000 people. As an Irish expatriate O'Keeffe-Ayudhkij was invited in 2009 to the Global Irish Economic Forum in Farmleigh. He was also a founder and director of the Irish Thai Chamber of Commerce and a past president of the Bangkok St. Patrick's Society among other accolades. Outside of the business arena O'Keeffe was a true philanthropist and committed to many charitable organisations including Support the Children Foundation and the Bangkok Nursing Home Hospital. His obituary in the Irish Times this year noted, He will be remembered for his business acumen, charity work, love of art and boundless enthusiasm.""

  • Exhibited: Arthur Tooth and Sons Ltd, London, 1962
  • In 1961 William Crozier's interests moved from the landscape to the depiction of skeletal, existential figures. These haunting images were invariably more concerned with depicting the human condition than with the portrayal of any one individual and they owe more to Art Brut ,which interested Crozier in the 1960s, than to any traditional idea of the self-portrait. Crozier created a number of self-portraits in 1961-62, a good example of which may be seen in the survey collection of artists' self-portraits acquired by Ruth Borchard. Almost fifty years after these self-portraits were painted, in 2010 the artist discussed them in a film made by Tangent Films, UK which throws further light on the present work.
